What's next?

The Photography Museum FOAM in Amsterdam, celebrating its tenth anniversary, has invited four different experts from the cultural field to realize a challenging proposal on how a photography exhibition can be presented in the future. They all four made rather radical exhibitions of which this one of Erik Kessels was the most provocative I think.

These photo's are the result of one day upload to Flickr. So the question was how can a museum do justice to a medium as versatile and varied as contemporary photography.

  6. CaT,
    No, I behave in public...but there was a school class with a guide and first I noticed they were not interested in the museum at all, until they came in this room, they threw the photo's in the air.
